Every important colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

Sydney City number 2

Sydney's current city is probably the largest urban system ever built from, and upon, an existing city framework and it was built in an unholy silence. So says Sydney based Peter Myers who was an architect on the design team of Jørn Utzon's famous Sydney Opera House at Bennelong Point.
Myers research was triggered in 1991 when a section of a lime plaster cornice collapsed on his c1853 Blacket villa - this led him to, maybe, the First Fleet's best-kept secret. Read more about Every important colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

TOXIC STATE - Australia's double standards

Julie Bishop’s recent support of the English demands to go after Russia over the alleged misuse of military-grade nerve agent to poison a known double agent on English soil demonstrates the double standards of Australia. Australian farmers and other sectors are using herbicides and pesticides with chemical components similar to high-grade military poisons, e.g. DDT, 2-4-5-T & mustard gas, which is used to kill weevils in grain silos and rabbits in warrens. These toxins leach into the soil and our river systems and when rain comes they drain into our aquifers. Read more about TOXIC STATE - Australia's double standards

Deceptive trickery of Native Title processes

Deceptive trickery of Native Title processes

A crime against our humanity is the way the Native Title process has been manipulated to further dispossess First Nations. Parliamentary legislation and 'Native Title specialist lawyers' are in lockstep with the colonial power to rob Aboriginal people of their inherent rights and responsibilities to uphold the oldest continuing living culture on the planet.

The NSW Biodiversity legislation direct assault on Aboriginal culture, spirituality

The NSW Biodiversity legislation direct assault on Aboriginal culture, spirituality

The new Biodiversity law is tantamount to a declaration of War against First Nations Peoples. These changes will seriously impact on our Laws, culture, religion and spirituality in the State of New South Wales. The new law is deregulation in its worst form, farmers can now basically do on "their" land what they want, clearing, destroying ecosystem and shoot whatever moves. Our sites, be it archaeological campsites, burial grounds or even sacred places have lost the little bit of protection they had, no we will not even be notified, if there is no Native Title claim over the area.
